I am new to Cold Fusion and have been asked to install Cold Fusion vesrion 7.02 application on Unix? Does any one know what version of Unix ( Solaris)? is needed to run Cold Fusion versionn 7.02 and point me to installation instructions. Additionally SQL Server is suppose to  backend dadatbase and  IIS will be the web server? How would all these pieces be put together and work to form a n tier web application?

supported O/S'es and webservers can be found here

http://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion/coldfusion7/systemreqs/

however CF needs to be installed on the same machine as the webserver so you aren't going to be using IIS is you're using *nix You'll need apache or something similar

CF 7 install docs (and all docs) are here

http://livedocs.adobe.com/coldfusion/7/htmldocs/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

The db server does not have to be on the same machine as CF so you can use MSSQL

SidFishes thanks.....So IIS web server does come into the picture if I run CF on Unix . If you run a CF web application on Unix server what web server could or would be  used ( is there a built web server within the unix machine or CF). Sorry for the dumb questions?

IIS is a windows program and can't be used in *nix land

what webserver you use depends a lot on which o/s you use although you can use apache on most

http://livedocs.adobe.com/coldfusion/6.1/htmldocs/config16.htm shows how to configure CF/Apache on UNix

There is a built in web server in the win version of CF not sure about nix. However it's only for development. You can get various specialized distributions of *nix which include a web server but which is best and how to set it up might require it's own question in the unix zone
